Venezuelan Regime Plans to Use Chinese and Russian Vaccines on Population

The Venezuelan regime announced on Tuesday night it will vaccine the national population with Chinese and Russian COVID-19 vaccines, which could arrive in capital Caracas in December or January.

The Venezuelan regime announced on Tuesday night it will vaccine the national population with Chinese and Russian COVID-19 vaccines, which could arrive in capital Caracas in December or January.

“It has been announced that the completed Russian and Chinese vaccines should arrive by December, January, December-January, and we are going to start vaccination,” Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro said during a live broadcast on state television. 

Maduro added that older people and those with existing diseases would take priority, but that all Venezuelans would be vaccinated.

The Venezuelan regime received a first batch of the Russian “Sputnik-V” COVID-19 vaccine in early October as part of the Phase Three clinical trial, and the Health Ministry said that about 2,000 volunteers would participate. The delivery was the first one in South America.

According to official data, there are nearly 90,000 COVID-19 cases and nearly 800 deaths in Venezuela. However, medical associations say the number of positive cases and deaths is likely higher.
